What does it take? Creating Effective Career and Technical Education Programs for Maryland
How do we best prepare students for 21st century careers and the future economy? There's a growing interest in finding ways to prepare students for a wide range of high wage, high skill and high demand jobs and careers. In Maryland, legislators and members of the Kirwan Commission are exploring ways to improve Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs. Join us on to hear from CTE researchers and a policy maker. We will explore research related to CTE, best practices, models of success and challenges with preparing students for high wage, high skill careers.
